Leeds United fans have blasted Hull City after it was reported that the Humberside club is the first to openly oppose plans to restart the Championship season.

According to the Telegraph, Hull have sent a “strongly-worded email” to the EFL to outline the “serious concerns” they have about continuing the season in the present climate.

Premier League clubs have started to return to training today (Tuesday) while Championship clubs will follow suit next Monday ahead of potentially restarting the season in June.

Leeds have always been in favour of playing out their remaining nine fixtures but plans to finish the season have not been met by opposition from a club fighting for their lives at the wrong end of the table.

As it stands, Hull are 21st in the Championship and only two points clear of the relegation zone having not won a league match since New Years Day.

That is why Leeds fans are finding it hard to take Hull’s plea seriously.

The only thing that the Tigers are worried about is getting relegated because they have been in absolute freefall since January when they sold Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki – their two best players.

If the season restarts and Hull are in the same form then they’re likely to finish in the bottom three and drop into League One.

Leeds’ Yorkshire rivals are clearly acting in their own self-interest here and that has been blasted by the Elland Road faithful on Twitter.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
